Our Academic and Research Partners

Over the past year I have worked with great pleasure and enthusiasm with the Maltego employees. Their support, ideas and creativity were a joy to experience. The opportunities that Maltego offered to be able to use the product for a short period of time in my educational process was also very positive. In addition, the reactions of my students were very positive and full of praise for Maltego as an instrument for conducting forensic research on the internet, among other things. They experienced this during the courses they followed with me and indicated this to me with conviction.

In short, I am very pleased with both Maltego as a product in cyber security, as well as the employees of the company behind this wonderful professional software product. I therefore highly recommend the product as the organization to use or to work with.

Working with the Maltego team was a great experience and their guidance was very helpful to take full advantage of the capabilities of their solution! I would recommend Maltego's academic program to any data science and security students that are interested in exploratory dataset analysis or correlation and enrichment of data from multiple different sources.
I was very enthusiastic about being accepted to the Maltego Program and I have set high expectations from myself in a period of time that simply had other priorities.  Even so, the big plus for myself is that, from time to time, I took my laptop and explored Maltego resources and learned a little about how it works. I am not a proficient user, but I am a better user than I was 9 months ago, and I really want to thank you and Maltego for this opportunity.
